I have a Nikon D5100.  As for software, I've just bought Adobe Lightroom 6 and I still have Adobe Photoshop CS6. But I'm totally confused about workflow. What I used to do, was to shoot in jpg, import into my Mac with Apple's own Image Capture software, process away in Photoshop CS6 and then store in iPhoto. (Probably completely wrong!) However, as I understand it, shooting and importing in RAW (in my case, Nikon's NEF) is more recommended in order to avoid loss of information. I'm not sure...

Hi, Can anyone recommend a decent Generic charger for the Nikon D5100 to replace the Nikon MH-24 Charging unit? One of the plug ‘prongs’ unfortunately snapped off on my charger unit whilst moving house. Like to keep things branded usually but can’t really bring myself to pay £47 for a new Nikon charger so the generic cheaper option is the route I would rather go. Did call Nikon to see if they could supply a new ‘plug part’ for want of a better description, as these slide of the actual charger...

Hi All, I am using Nikon D5100 along with 55-200 Kit Lens. As I am interested in Bird Photography, I am planning to upgrade my Lens. I am taking the two lens into consideration as they are nearly same on my budget. 1. Nikkon 300 MM F/4 Prime Lens without VR 2. Tamron 150-600 VC USD. Any idea which would be suitable with Nikon D5100. I am very much interested in buying Nikon 300 MM f/4 but is in fear that without VR may affect immensely. (With VR is way over my budget). Tamron 150-600 though...

I took a few shots purely for record of M13 while testing my D5100a. I know that M13 does have a propeller shape within the structure, so at first I thought this cross shape was it. On closer inspection, despite the poor quality I have resolved the propeller at the 6 o clock position. That just leaves the cross shape, pointed out. I don't think it is an artifact because it appeared on a friend's camera too. Maybe it could just be the short exposure. --Steve

Hello, I am trying to read the manual to see how I can adjust the screen to stay "On" longer than the default. It shuts off too quickly for me (with full battery.) Can someone please give me directions as to where the control for this feature is? (Incidentally, I moved from D5100 to D5500, and I am impressed at the unexpected significant improvement in photo quality - using the same lens, Nikon 16-85 zoom. Besides the increase in megapixels, Nikon obviously did a good thing by removing a...

Hi, I am new here, and have not been doing photography long. I have been learning photography for the past three years, with the Nikon D5100, and am finding that the lack of weather resistance and single SD card slot are becoming problems, amongst other issues when taking pictures, such as the need to use the same wheel for aperture and shutter speed. Would the Nikon D7100 be a good upgrade. I already have many lenses in DX, so do not see it economical to go to full frame, as nice as this...

Hi, I have a Nikon D5100 and considering upgrading to a D5500. A key feature of interest is in making videos, my current D5100 does not allow "full" manual adjustment, you can set the shutter speed and the aperture, but if the sensor does not like the lighting, it adjusts the ISO whether you want it or not. What does the D5500 do? Can you set all three components manually (shutter, aperture, ISO) and the cam stay within the selected parameters regardless? thank you --RUcrAZ

Hello, I have a Nikon D5100 that managed to fall off a table, resulting in the mirror getting slightly off its hinges. (It tries to raise itself, but can't quite make it, and it can be observed is is very slightly out of true.) Can anyone please suggest a reliable Nikon repair facility in the general area (preferably Philadelphia) or New York, or should I send it to the nearest Nikon facility? Anither question: Is there such a thing as a Niikon "program" to accept damaged older Nikons, as...
